BUILDING A PLAYGROUND FOR ALL
Royal Sunalta Park is in the heart of the Calgary inner city communities of Sunalta and Scarboro. In 2021, when a much-loved playground at the top of the hill reached the end of its lifespan and the swing set in the lower park area was not being used, a small group of residents with young children from both neighbourhoods thought it was time to think about a vision for a new safer, more accessible outdoor playground. Building on their love for children, a desire to ensure innovative outdoor play spaces in local parks that would enhance social and learning opportunities, the team set out to plan what will soon become the new Olmsted Elm Playground. The seed has been sown.
With a reputable playground vendor selected, plans approved by the City of Calgary, and one-third of the initial funding raised, the Olmsted Elm Playground Team is now reaching out further in the next leg of its campaign to raise the remaining 2/3 in 2 months so that we can get shovels in the ground by spring and kids playing again in the park by summer of 2023.
